CBD Brands Endure a Tumultuous Month

FDA warnings for false marketing come during a busy period for hemp companies

CHICAGO — It’s been a rocky month for cannabidiol (CBD) brands. In late November, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued warning letters to 15 companies for illegally selling CBD products in ways that violate the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act).

According to the warning letters, the companies were marketing CBD products as remedies that treat diseases and for other therapeutic uses in humans and animals. Some have also marketed CBD products as dietary supplements and are adding CBD to human and animal foods, while others have marketed the products for infants and children.
